With William Plumer in Romans, Morning

Romans 1:12
NAS –  …that is, that I may be encouraged together with you while among you, each of us by the other’s faith, both yours and mine.
KJV – That is, that I may be comforted together with you by the mutual faith both of you and me.

“Doing good is one of the best ways of getting good. And it is mere vanity and intolerable pride in any man, however great his acquirements, to think that plain, humble, private Christians cannot add anything to his strength and comfort, v. 12. Calvin: ‘There is no one so void of gifts in the church of Christ, as not to be able to contribute something to our benefit.’ Brown: ‘The best way for pastors, or others, to prevent the discouragement that young beginners are obnoxious unto, is not to harp too much upon their weaknesses and infirmities, but rather to be putting themselves in the same case and condition with them, as needing the same supply and help that they stand in need of.” (Romans, 58)
